This special issue/series seeks high-quality manuscripts on replication studies. Articles may include, but are not limited to replication studies in higher education involving instructional technology. These replication studies should demonstrate a strong grounding in learning and instructional theory and rigorous educational research design, in addition to established guidelines and frameworks for designing the replication study.
What kind of model should institutions of higher education (IHEs) use as they look to utilize information drawn from the learning activities conducted with digital platforms for systemic improvement? Among the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic is the realization that instructional support technology can be used on a massive scale when needed. Platform-based teaching provides options for IHEs to respond to a range of needs, to be resilient in the face of other disasters and disruptions that may occur in the future. Platforms can also allow an IHE to extend its reach to new communities. The phrase institutional learning ecosystems borrows concepts from organizational learning to advance a broad view of how an organization connects to its stakeholders. The ecosystem framing is a contemporary approach used with communities and complex organizations—terms that couple apply to IHEs—that highlights emergent, adaptive, and responsive approaches (Wang, 2021).
